Stormy Sky

Stormy Sky
7x10"

Yesterday was the last of my skies class. To finish off, I taught the class how to do the above painting. We did 7 skies in the 8 weeks. Some were a real challenge but it was great to see what everyone accomplished. I really enjoyed painting and teaching different skies but I especially enjoyed my students. I must admit that it was one of the best groups that I have taught and I will miss them. 
This week has been another crazy week. I have my studio tour in 2 weeks and I agreed to do a couple of pouring demonstrations as I continue to teach several more classes. O yes. And the sleepover birthday party for my 10 year old son. A house full of 10 year old boys should be fun. Not sure what I was thinking? I always think I can do more than I actually can. I've decided that I can get it all done if I just cut out the sleep. It would also help if the weather and the car cooperated. Might as well throw the kids into that mix. Maybe I could bribe the 10 year old boys to clean?
Hopefully the stars, the universe and everything else will align in such a way that I can get it all done.

Leslie, I don't know how you captured the sky but you have captured the "stormy sky" very nicely.

Your painting is gorgeous! Did you use pouring techniques on this one? I'm intrigued by that technique, need to try it some time. Good luck with your busy week and hope you survive the sleepover:) My boys are still to young for that, Oh the things I get to look forward to.

Thank you Carrie! It isn't a pour but I did let the paint and water run off the paper to get the feel of rain.
As for the boys, it is so much fun and a little scary to watch them grow up. I can't believe mine is 10 years old!
